The EV City Casebook: 50 Big Ideas is one of the Low Carbon Champions for 2014–2015, as announced by the Low Carbon Vehicle Partnership (LowCVP). The Champions Awards celebrate achievement and innovation in low-carbon road transport. The EV City Casebook was a cooperative effort of the Clean Energy Ministerial’s Electric Vehicles Initiative (EVI), the International Energy Agency’s Hybrid & Electric Vehicle Implementing Agreement, and future city think tank Urban Foresight and was recognized as the Low Carbon Publication or Report of the Year.
The second volume in a series highlighting leadership and best practices in advancing electric mobility, the Casebook profiles innovative ideas that could bring about a step change in electric vehicle (EV) adoption. The publication highlights transformative EV policies, technologies, projects, and business models being implemented in 23 countries across 6 continents.
In its award announcements, LowCVP describes the publication as profiling “50 world-changing ideas that will shape the future of electric mobility.” The judges said that the guide “brings together important stakeholders at the international level with highly tangible outcomes.”

The Electric Vehicles Initiative (EVI) is one of 13 initiatives of the Clean Energy Ministerial, a high-level global forum to share best practices and promote policies and programs that encourage and facilitate the transition to a global clean energy economy. EVI seeks to facilitate the global deployment of 20 million EVs, including plug-in hybrid EVs and fuel cell vehicles, by 2020.
Formed in 1993, the International Energy Agency's Implementing Agreement for Cooperation on Hybrid & Electric Vehicle Technologies and Programmes is a membership group of representatives of 18 national governments to produce and disseminate balanced, objective information about advanced electric, hybrid, and fuel cell vehicles.
